As an educator, I am especially distressed by the presence of uniformed guards at the Santa Ana High School polling site. Lessons to instill pride and responsibility in our future citizens are hypocritical at best in the face of this outrageous incident. I agree with Raoul Silva, state Republican Central Committee member, that: "It's not only illegal, it's immoral. It's un-American, it's unconstitutional and it's despicable." But it happened. Can we undo the harm it has done to the students who must perpetuate our democratic ideals in this pluralistic society?

The Anaheim Union High School District will hold a public hearing Thursday on what to do with the former Oxford Junior High School. For the last seven years, the school district has leased the Orange Avenue school to Greater Long Beach Christian School Inc., which runs Brethren Christian High School. Last year, the district voted to resume using the school and notified Brethren officials that the lease would not be extended for the 1998-99 school year.

We are delighted that Patricia Clark White is returning to Orange County, this time as superintendent of the Irvine Unified School District (Sept. 3). However, for those who missed the correction Sept. 4, the county's first female district superintendent was Cynthia Grennan, Anaheim Union High School District chief from 1979 to 1996. Former Yorba Linda Elementary School District Supt. Mary Ellen Blanton served from 1985 to 1989, when the district unified with the Placentia District.

We want to thank all the parents, students, teachers, school administrators and law enforcement officials who took time out of their busy schedules to attend our recent forum on school violence at Western High School. We especially thank Western High School, the Anaheim Union High School District and Supt. Janice Billings for hosting the event. The tragic shooting in Littleton, Colo., shocked and saddened the country and left many parents in Orange County wondering, "Is my child safe at school?"

In 1898, when Central School became the first campus in Anaheim to open its doors to high school students, 39 students were waiting. As the Anaheim Union High School District begins its centennial celebration, 30,000 are enrolled in middle and high school grades. Coping with growth and planning for the next 100 years will be hot topics as the district celebrates its heritage. "We hope the celebration heightens the awareness education has played in the community," Supt. Janice Billings said.
